Lost Country

(Lost Country)

Serbia, 1996. Stefan, an ordinary secondary school student, loves water polo and has little interest in politics. This all changes when the political party for which his mother works is accused of election fraud.

Slobodan Milošević’s Serbian Socialist Party wants to retain power at any cost, even if it means falsifying election results. When the public finds out, unrest ensues – the opposition riots, people take to the streets, arrests mount. Stefan defends his mother, the party’s spokesperson, to his friends, yet doubts arise in his mind. Might she be involved in something he deeply disagrees with? As the country descends into chaos, the gap of misunderstanding between Stefan and his mother widens. Confronted by the reality of the surrounding world, Stefan faces a moral dilemma – should he remain faithful to his family or to his newly found ideals?
